On arrival at Newport we were quite disappointed with the town itself, and were really struggling to find somewhere open for lunch that wasn't fried foods / jacket potatoes / paninis.
We came across Tuscal Hills by accident and it was a very happy one! The restaurant wasn't busy, just one other couple dining at the same time. But the service was quick and non intrusive, the food itself delicious, and the entire meal was such a good value price.
We ordered the onion soup to start, which was almost more like a stew with the chunks of onion, the cheese and croutons. Really tasty. My husband had the melon and parma ham which he really enjoyed.
For mains my husband had the rare steak strips, and I had the aubergine bake - both were really good. The bake was just £8.90 and also came with a complimentary side or salad. I ordered the greek salad which was a great size - really went well with the bake.
For dessert we had tiramisu (amazing, home made) and strawberry cheesecake.
The whole meal, with a large glass of wine and a can of soft drink, came to just £40. And we also received a jug of tap water with lemon at the start of the meal.
Would definitely recommend for lunch or evening meal - a definite gem in Newport!
